Autonomy is hearing these women's voices, honouring them. Remembering how they were repeatedly violated at the hands of a white man, only to be discarded from history. They must be recognized.

I am a midwife and am appalled at the treatment of black slaves in the name of science . We must change the name of the speculum too.

There would have been no progress without Anarcha and the brutality towards her should be recognised.

Details are important and we all need to keep learning them. Truth is bravery and the knowledge of it is everything.

Sobre todos los males de este mundo la crueldad es el que más aborrezco. Este hombre uso a las pobres esclavas para sus pruebas médicas, con qué derecho? Espero que pronto sea tan ilegal usar animales como es hoy usar personas para este fin.
